    Re: Video Games Thread

    I played a little online poker several years ago, at PokerStars.net, before everything blew up and cash games were outlawed. It was fun, but also frustrating, when someone at the table would just "all-in" everyone else to death. It's a strategy that would never fly at a real table.

    These days I keep to my Wii, but I find myself playing older N64 games that I've downloaded more than anything new. Love that Mario!

    Outlawed?

    PokerStars is what I've been using the most, too. I want a FORT poker game. I want to challenge some others. I don't All In others to death. I am a good player with a fair and professional strategy. Usually if I'm in a table with a loser like that, I just keep folding and wait for someone else to beat them down.

    If there's anything I like more than winning a game of poker, it would be winning against a couple of jerks or bitches. I was put in a game with two friends, I'd guess, who thought it was fun to insult everyone else at the table. Thankfully I beat both of them to the ground and won that game. My final words? "I'd say 'good game' if you weren't such a bitch".

    Afterwards I won another six person game. A lot nicer group... even though nobody said anything the whole game. Sometimes that's all that's needed. I'd rather lose to someone like that than someone who talks hypocritical smack at the table.

    I should also mention that in the first game, I was in a distant last place for a while when all six people were still in it. But I got back, and eventually won the thing.

    So I found this thing on Pokerstars which lets me create a club for people I invite. It's all free, of course. No real gambling involved.

    if anyone wants to sign up for Pokerstars and join the group, that would be cool.

    Or if there's a better alternative, that would be good too.

    I'm still proposing this idea.

    Well gee

    I played in a 55 (or so) person tournament just now. I finished 2nd. I was never anywhere close to winning. I was never in the lead, in the end it was me with like $300 against someone with over $25,000, but I managed to leech myself and stick to it until the blinds took me out at the end.

    Just like do on here too, right? I leech and am like a cockroach

    Is this a role you enjoy? It sounds like you're bragging about it. I'm confused.

    I'm not bragging about anything, other than finishing in second place in a 50+ player tournament.
